About the album

It was one of those times when Dad has to show his son who calls the shots!

King George I was a man of simple tastes really, but the peacock displays of his eldest son, the Prince of Wales, provoked a right royal response. And so the famous Mr Handel was commissioned to write a splendid suite for a festivity on the Thames that would set new standards in every way. Handel fulfilled the King's wishes to his entire satisfaction, and the Hannoversche Hofkapelle, legitimate successors to their waterborne London colleagues, have newly recorded his "Celebrated Water Musick" - with insights that take us by surprise even today.
